* *ATO Scam Alerts * *
myGov or myGovID
The ATO are receiving reports of a new email scam that asks people to update their myGov or myGovID details.
Scammers pretending to be from the ‘myGov customer care team’ are sending emails telling people they need to verify their identity by clicking on a link.
Do not click the links and do not provide the information requested.
We have also had numerous reports of scammers pretending to be from the ATO tell people their tax file number (TFN) has either been suspended due to illegal activity or compromised by a scammer.
They request the call recipient either pay a fine to release their TFN or transfer all bank funds into a holding account to protect it from future misuse.
The ATO does not suspend TFNs and will never request you pay a fine or transfer money in order to protect your TFN pending legal action.
Phone calls from the ATO do not project a number on caller ID and we will never send unsolicited pre-recorded messages to your phone.
If you receive a phone call like this, hang up and do not provide the information requested.
If you’re unsure whether an ATO contact is genuine, phone the ATO directly on 1800 008 540 to check.
If ever in doubt, please contact our office.
Please also warn your family and friends & visit the ATO scam alerts page for regular updates.
